Freestanding baths are eye-catchers and if you have the room, the best option for your new home or renovation in Byron or the Gold Coast is a Freestanding one. When your bathroom is designed correctly, a Freestanding bath will stand out as a statement of luxury and comfort.
Baths are available in any shape, and now also in almost any colour – even clear.

TIP: is your bath going upstairs? Apart from…’’how am I going to get up there’’ the most important thing to consider about your Freestanding bath in an upstairs bathroom is will the install be on floor joists? If it is, then careful consideration needs to be given to the weight / carrying capacity of the joists as some baths are up to 250kg and when you add the water and take into account a person or two in the bath then that could mean 500-600kg on 2 SQM of floor which could be problematic.
